Based on about 14 million reviews on RateMyProfessor, this tool by Ben Schmidt lets you compare words used to describe professors, categorized by gender and discipline. For example, the above is the usage rate of “smart” in reviews, and you see lower rates with professors who are women than for men, for every discipline. This is true when you look at all reviews at once, just positive ones, or just negative ones.
